Thought I Felt Something Weird

So, Dad and i were ready to take the boat out at the lake on Saturday. It was afternoon. He was in the boat and I was standing on the dock, trying to coax Lisa’s Jack Russell Terrier, Emily, off the boat. That’s when I felt and heard it. It was like a sonic boom, along with the sensation that something had just hit the dock, shaking it under my feet, causing me to grasp the railing to right myself. At first, I thought: Sonic Boom. No. Large tree floating down river and hitting the dock. No. Explosion at the power plant. No. Earthquake? Naw!

Totally strange. It was an earthquake.

    We had an earthquake hit (or whatever it is that earthquakes do) a few years back. It happened in the middle of the night and woke both of us up, because something in the house cracked (tho we never found out what that was). We thought someone had broken in, and so I had to get up and creep around the house in the dark trying to figure out what was going on. We didn’t find out until the next morning what had actually happened.

    We had the same thing a few years ago, and I think it may have been the same. Like a crack.

    Strangest feeling. Makes you feel very small and out of control.
